Black and White: Taylor Swift's Denim Shorts and Sneakers Look for Less

Recreate Taylor Swift's casual summer style with affordable fashion finds.
It never ceases to amaze me how celebrities with seemingly limitless financial resources still often choose to rock the most basic of basics for their everyday style. Here's Taylor Swift's cool summer style, just a black loose fitting tee, black denim shorts and some white sneakers. Granted her shoes are Saint Laurent 'Court Stars' leather sneakers ($493, or $645 at, and her handbag is designer, too, but we found some near identical finds that will have you rocking her look in no time...millionaire status not required.

Step out of the airport in style with an ensemble inspired by Chrissy Teigen's latest travel-chic look.

Wedding Guest Dresses Under $100

Lauren kicked off the series with her vintage romantic picks, and now I'm sharing my modern classic favorites. My picks are pretty and practical...and start at just $30 because I get it - as much as I love dressing up, I hate spending a ton on something I'll just wear a handful of times (if that). If you feel me, keep reading to see what I'm recommending to friends right now...
